Abstract

Assesses the effect of gibberellic acid on germination of Tripsacum dactyloides. Gibberellic acid increased germination rate and percentage of seeds with capsules removed but germination remained below 100%. Gibberellic acid did not enhance germination of seeds with the cupule intact. Results suggest there may be multiple dormancy mechanisms in this species involving both the cupule and caryopsis.
